Pre-Dance (semi-birthday) Party!

In our house the kids get to have a big "friend" party every other year.  This was an "off" year for Mackenzie.  Since her birthday was on the same day as the RSM Dance I suggested she have a few friends over for a "pre-dance" party. 

A few of her closest friends (about 30 of them) descended on our home last night!

We decorated with a Valentine theme and set the mood:

They jumped on the trampoline:

Played Wii Sport Resort:

Posed for pictures:

Honored Mackenzie with a crown and "Happy Birthday" song:

Just hung out and acted like silly teenagers:

Before everyone departed for the dance I took a group shot of all who were there.  Our small gathering of a few friends ended up looking like this:  (and this is not even close to all her friends)

Happy 15th Birthday Mackenzie!!!!!

Happy 15th Birthday Mackenzie!!!

Jump for Joy...its MACKENZIE'S 15th birthday! 
 Just think in six months you will start learning to drive and in one year you will be able to date- yikes!  But for now let's just enjoy the moment and time when you turn 15 and do not have to worry about all that!  You have brought so much joy and happiness into our lives.  You may be a drama queen, but we love how strong, independent, and motivated you are!

Happy Birthday Beautiful Girl (aka..Kenzerbug)!
